Chapter 12: The role of institutions in the norm life cycle: the United Nations and the anti-capital punishment norm
This chapter examines the emergence, development and institutionalization of the anti-death penalty norm at the United Nations. Relying largely on the international relations literature, the chapter explores the three stages of life cycle that the norm against the death penalty has experienced through the United Nations, and further discusses different procedures and mechanisms that operated in each stage. Giving special attention to the second and third stages of norm cascade and institutionalization, in particular, the chapter investigates how the norm has influenced various bodies and agencies at the United Nations.
